Trivia

At the time this show was filmed the cost of the Staten Island Ferry was 5 cents per ride. You really were supposed to get off the ferry and pay another 5 cents at the turnstile in the terminal to take the return ride, but there were people who sometimes fell asleep and made the round trip before they woke up. Since 1997 the ferry has been free. However, these days (especially since 9/11) you must get off the ferry and come back on through the terminal. The deckhands won't begin to load passengers until everyone from the previous trip has disembarked. Lucy and Fred would never have been allowed to stay on these days. See more »

Goofs

When Fred is talking to Lucy in German, he calls her "Fräulein"; which is the German word for "miss". He should have called her "Frau", the German word for "missus". See more »
